Rhyme Boards can be used to develop children's attention and listening skills, language skills, and rhyme recognition skills. Rhyme boards:
- Provide visual clues and prompts
- Promote good attention
- Encourage children to be actively involved
- Increase expressive language
- Improve rhyme recognition
They are suitable for whole class or small groups of children as well as using at home with an individual child.
These materials are especially designing for group work. Use the flash cards as visual prompts when telling the story. Print them on card with velcro for children to retell, or join in re-telling the story. There is more information on storyboarding on the Symbols Inclusion Project website http://www.symbolsinclusionproject.org
Make small versions for one-to one and small group work.
